Introduction

“And the LORD answered me, and said, write the vision, and make it plain on tables, that he may run that reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” – Habakkuk 2:2-3.

Operation Save America is embarking on a new national vision to expand a concept discovered in the Old Testament. The Biblical model we are seeking to apply in America today is the Cities of Refuge. As you may recall, there were six Levitical cities set apart in Israel for refuge in the cases of questionable deaths. These cities were established by God to provide asylum till proof of innocence or guilt against the accused could be established. These cities were also designed to protect Israel from blood guiltiness, lest the avenger of blood pursue and kill an innocent person. States of Refuge: Operation: First Abortion Free States seeks this same protection in our time.

Operation Save America believes States of Refuge is a vision whose time has come. According to Habakkuk, the next prudent step is to “write the vision and make it plain.” Our hope is that others will read it, bear witness to it, and run with the vision till its appointed time of fulfillment comes to pass.
